Don’t do drugs, m’kay? That’s the moral of this rather pleasingly straightforward TNG episode. There’s a strong 80s moral, hammered home by Wesley and Tasha – but it doesn’t matter overall. Grant and Rob discuss whether one civilisation could rely on another in this way.
Episode synopsis: 18th April 1988.
